View Full Version : [ubuntu] Backing up with Maxtor One Touch III Mini Edition

March 2nd, 2011, 12:41 AM
I'm new to the Forum, but have been using it for a while. Great Help!!
I want to use my external drive as described above to backup in Ubuntu.
I used it in Windows XP and was wondering if the only way to use it is to reformat and just use it as a USB drive??
Right now - when I plug it in, everything is recognized by Ubuntu 10.10. But obviously the "one touch system" is only programmed for windows ...
What's your thought on this? Is it worth it trying to figure out a driver for this or to just format it? If I format it, what format? And what's the best Backup program in your opinion.
